I hate international weeks for so many reasons.
Seeing your own players booed like Eduardo at Wembley is not nice, especially when it comes from your own nation, but it just shows how small-minded the bulldog-tattooed prats who follow three lions really are.
The other concern, and the one that has hit us AGAIN is the potential injuries suffered by our players.
Andrey Arshavin went off against M*nure so to play him for 90 minutes against Wales was unnecessary and has ruled him out for three games.
When we need someone with a bit of magic to give us some inspiration, he is such an integral part of the team.
Add to that the revelation that Johann Djourou will be out for up to EIGHT months, injured on international duty before the season really began, and it makes Arsene Wenger's decision not to sign a new centre-back seem crazy.
Can the likes of Kyle Bartley step up or will it be left to Fishface, Phil Senderos and Alex Song?
The fact that Citeh are without Carlos Tevez and possibly Robinho is scant consolation really because they still ahve a lot of decent attacking talent.
Doubts remain about Cesc Fabregas but I'm going to assume he is available, and the fact that Eduardo and Tomas Rosicky played some part during the week at least gives them a workout as they get back to full fitness after long lay-offs.

Song Fabregas Denilson
Bendtner van Persie Eduardo
What do you think? Would you risk starting Rosicky or play Abou Diaby?
